Bridemaid Fashion and Flowers | Real Weddings | 2015

I love showing off the bridesmaid dresses that my couples have had in their weddings because I think they make such great choices for the ladies involved! Everyone always looks fabulous! Below are photos from the Bellwether Events 2015 weddings. You can check out the 2016 bridesmaid fashion round up as well.

You are going to see a lot of blue dresses below. I think this is due to a number of factors. First, blue is often considered a neutral color and can be paired with just about any other color! Second, dark blue is a formal color for a dress, and many of my clients have formal wedding celebrations. Third, people like blue! And want to feature blue in their weddings – but there aren’t a lot of blue flowers, so my advice to my clients is to use blue in other places, such as attire, linens and paper goods, to get the exact hue you want as a part of your wedding color palette. And finally, I think many brides who are marrying grooms want their wedding look to have a balance of the masculine and the feminine – and thus they add blue to the color scheme.
